Sierre Townhall

Construction of the magnificent town hall of Sierre has begun around 1658 for Jean-François Courten, a captain in the Swiss Guards in the service of King Louis XIV. Extended over the centuries, this private mansion became the Grand-Hôtel Château-Bellevue at the end of the 19th century, a renowned establishment, before falling into decline following the First World War. Bought by the local council in 1964, it now has a new life as the town hall.
